Malaysian Ringgit and US Dollar Forecasts

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the MYR vs USD, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Malaysian Ringgit (MYR)

Malaysia was added to a US watchlist of suspected currency manipulators in May. Though that means little right now in terms of economic implications, it added to negative sentiment, which then spurred a rise in USD/MYR to a 6-month high (MYR low) of RM4.2.

Among factors contributing to the ringgit’s weakness over the past year has been political uncertainty relating to Malaysia’s ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition, late-2018’s crash in oil prices, global trade tensions and higher US interest rates.

Read more in the article MYR Forecasts.

 

US Dollar (USD)

In early May the continuing coronavirus pandemic and an associated possible re-escalation in the US-China trade tensions has moved the market into safer currencies such as the USD and JPY.

Goldman Sachs and RBC Capital forecast a large drop for US dollar against Japanese Yen to continue with a USD/JPY rate of 95 in the near future.

The US dollar held its value in 2019 despite the US-China trade tensions, mainly because the greenback is still considered a safer currency to own than most others.

How to get Best MYR to USD Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

 

What is a good MYR to USD exchange rate?
